I think every photo we see of Io, she brings a smile to our faces.

This picture put a smile on my face. No disrespect intended towards Mrs. Day, but her choice of attire to "hit the road" on a bike??? Just getting on the bike in a dress for a staged photo surely would have resulted in a few chuckles.

Do you think Alva was smiling when he snapped the photo?

Do you know the year this picture was taken? Also, that house across the street looks so familiar.
Ladies in these days didn't usually wear pants. I bet her husband could have had a difficult time keeping the camera still and laughing at the same time, must have been comical!

I thought I would add a little bit of information here about Io.
She was born in Kansas in 1885. She had four sisters and two brothers. Most of them had normal names, but one sister was named Keo.
She and Alva were married in 1909. In 1910, she and Alva are living on June St.
In 1930, she and Alva live on June St. with son Carroll, daughters Helen and Emma and Io's father William Stewart. In 1940 it is back to just Alva and Io living on June St.
Io passed away in 1955. I suspect they were still living on June St with the hidden bottle of moonshine.

Correction....Io was born 1887.

Alva and Io lived at 420 June Street until the ends of their lives in 1955. I'm pretty sure this one was taken on 5th Street just north of their house. That's their old "Model T garage" in the background.
